Wrong place for what? I answered the question with the reason behind a reformatt/reinstall.
This is the longest I have gone. Three months & counting. Damn xp. Now I am going to forget how to reinstall it.
Never unless something makes it necessary to do so. I'm a real believer in: If it ain't broke........
That's why I was always reinstalling win9x. Even looking at ME was enough to corrupt the registry. I've done things in xp which had it been 9x would have meant a format again, again & again. It's nice to actually get some computer time in without having to worry about stability.
I got close to a year without having to format
Hipster - I have 4 systems running 98SE and all were set up about 3-4 years ago. Two are at my office and two at home. Never had to do a reinstall on any of them.
longest i have had my system up wit out reinstall 5 months, damn windows, why cant ms make it stable to leave it stay up longer, damn them, man linux does a better job, oh well.
Well I have yet to need to do a reinstall of Windows XP but I also don't remember how long I've had ii installed
unless testing on a test computer .... only once on each computer. if setup right theres never been any real problems..
I only format when i make a big change to my hardware. longest time windows has been up was a year. Formatted a week ago because i changed my hdd.
I usually screw it up after a few months, my current XP installation is the longest any Windows or Linux version has ever been on my PC
Hmmm... Just formated yesterday because system became unstabled
My windows is never more than a couple of weeks old. After a fresh install (fully tweaked) & installing all my favourite programs I go online once to get an AV. update then I make a drive image & save it to a partition. After doing this I start to make a list of all the changes I make no matter how small (tweaks, updates, new programs etc.). Then I reinstall the image, make the changes & back it up again. Now my image is bang up to date & less than 12 hours old.
